Every day, humans (un)consciously modify and design their bodies. This indicates a worldwide phenomenon concerning (more or less) all humans. Since the postmodern era, an increasing tendency to design one{\textquoteright}s visual appearance has been observed. There are (almost) no limits anymore for the body to become a performing object and scope of action (cf. Gugutzer 1998; Villa 2007). Cognitive processes dealing with constructions of identity/identities are becoming ever more subtle, because changed life situations are found in the globalized world. Due to major interventions of neo-capitalistic environments, existing identity models are becoming fragile, giving rise to the need to find alternative standardizations and new orientations. Social realities of young people are shaped by diversity and heterogeneity. Simultaneously they need to socialize to get around ideas of what is “normal” and what is not. These ambivalent re-quirements of customization and pluralization on the one hand and standardization on the other hand, create a big area of tension, especially for lesbians, gays, bisexuals, trans, inter and queer people.",
